Astralis "struggle" after 3 bad maps ok my "men" :DDDD
2019-04-15 20:03
astralis wasnt playing that bad tho MIBR was playing like SK FAZE was playing like gods on their day liquid game was close other teams need credit as well for beating astralis
2019-04-15 20:27
yeah that too So Idk why HLTV podcast write "struggle"
2019-04-15 20:36
i think bcz they lost all 3 BO1 games on same day that means ''struggle'' astralis may be got TILTED after MIBR loss 16-2 it was 2-2 and they lost 14 rounds in row after that GODzera showed up in that map
2019-04-15 20:42
They write struggle bc astralis doesn’t drop 3 maps in a row. It just doesn’t happen

2019-04-15 20:30
Astralis clearly threw the match against faze. They’re fragile snowflakes who will say they play too many tournaments

He ... Good to see I'm not the only one slapping my forehead ... ;O) They lost a few times last year as well, even as late as November in Stockholm if I remember correctly ... to NORTH of all teams! No offence, but they have never been top 5. It seems to be a huuuuge subject for even top analysts and thousands of airhe ... eeeh ... other people, whenever Astralis lose every now and then. i don't get it. ;O)

And yet they are on 1000 points? I don't understand the system.

I'm not sure either, but it seems that the top team always have a 1000 points, and then the following teams are catching up or closing in until one day, the top team (these days Astralis) is dethroned. The Liquid on 2nd place has 617 points just goes to show that it may require just a tiny bit more before we even BEGIN talking about "Astralis struggle" ... ;O)

I see! Plz tell me! Or you have a link or somdin' so I can work it out myself? Astralis have maintained a 1000 points since 30th of April 2018, but the following teams have fluctuated a bit. Not sure how it works.

You have three subrankings.. if you're the best in all of these you have 1000 Points... Liquid for example had a better form ranking in the beginning of the year, that's the reason Astralis didn't have 1000 Points back then because they didn't had 200 Points in the form subranking

No, they've dropped a few point to 990+, it was last year, sadly I don't remember when exactly.

A few Bo1 loses and they are suddenly no longer treated as best team and considered struggling? How about we call them struggling when they actually have several lost in bo3 instead

+1 You can see my comments above. It seems like some sort of "hunting for headlines" ... or "sensations" ... Stupid and childish. Astralis actually did lose a few matches and/or games last year. They are NOT made of iron or from another planet. They ARE human! ;O) Of course the strongest team, but not invincible.
2019-04-16 20:14
Any team can be the champion but liquid is always numba 2
2019-04-16 08:12
nice
2019-04-16 10:04
Overreacting to Astralis losing to bo1 matches.
2019-04-16 12:30
I confirm this things

Anything good about Astralis: HLTV <3 Astralis' dong Anything bad about Astralis: Overreacting, just BO1's... But tbh I agree
